  • Hands Down - - The best view on Plum Island

    "I had an extended stay at Gray Gull - - long enough to enjoy a change of seasons. There is NO better location on the island - - None. Direct waterfront with stunning water views to the south, the west and the north. The welcoming deck looks west and across the harbor to the city and steeples of Newburyport. Every sunset is different and often stunning. The house is cosy and flooded with sunshine. The owners have furnished the house well and tastefully. It is a " feel good house". The location affords privacy but is close to everything including all the many sights and activities of Newburyport. It is clear that the owners take great pride in there property and make every effort to accommodate their guests. I highly recommend Gray Gull with qualification."

  • Fantastic Vacation

    "My husband and I stayed at this property for four days in October to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We were so pleased with everything. Arthur was so easy to get a hold of, he made sure he returned your email within 24 hours or less. The apartment was extremely clean and there was everything there you could possible need from linens to coffee, there was even wireless internet. I felt like I was at home. The apartment is within walking distance to everything in Salem. We have been coming up to Salem for the last 17 years and have stayed at a few different places. This was by far the best, in fact as soon as we came home I emailed Arthur and reserved it for next year. It's so nice to have a clean, comfortable place to stay when you are traveling. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Thank You Arthur for making our anniversary fantastic."

  • Annual Family Vacation

    "This was our second summer at the Golden Cottage and it was more enjoyable than the first. The set up of the home, the great views and perfect location make the Golden Cottage a great family gathering spot. Don't miss the Lobster Pot, best lobsters ever and for a special night we would recommend The Market Restaurant in Gloucester."
